This is why the Arizona Cardinals used the No. 1 overall pick on Kyler Murray out of Oklahoma.
On Thursday Night Football in Week 11, the Cardinals starting quarterback evaded a certain tackle by Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams. It was such an elusive juke Adams must have come out of his cleats. Mobility was a big reason the Cardinals decided to move on from Josh Rosen after only one season in favor of Murray. Arizona will always take more of this out of Murray.
How good can the Arizona Cardinals be in Kyler Murray’s second season?
Through the first 10 weeks, Arizona has played like an NFC playoff team at 6-3. Will the Cardinals win the NFC West this year, going worst-to-first in the process? Potentially, but they need to complete the season sweep of Seattle and hope the Los Angeles Rams do not catch fire as the weather changes. Either way, it would be shocking to not see the Cardinals playing in January.
Admittedly, this is untrodden territory for much of the Cardinals roster. Playoff inexperience is something the Rams and the Seahawks do not have to worry about. For that reason, Arizona is likely a one-and-done in postseason football this season. However, more jukes like this out of Murray might have the Cardinals playing on the road in the NFC Divisional Round for all we know.
Murray gives the Cardinals juice they have not had offensively in years, and it is fantastic.
